My trip report from the Philippines

Hi

My wife and I went to the Philippines this summer (in July) and we spent a few days in Metro Manila, Bohol, Boracay and a quick stop in Cebu. I have made a trip report and I hope that it can be of some help to other first time visitors to the Philippines. You can find the trip report here http://gardkarlsen.com/Philippines_trip_report.htm and more photos here http://gardkarlsen.com/Philippines_photos.htm

The most amazing experiences on this trip was snorkeling with whale sharks in Oslob in Cebu and seeing the beautiful White beach of Boracay

Regards
Gard

I'm guessing you did not do the Corregidor tour- for any history buff its not to be missed.

Fantasitic TR Gard. have started reading it in preparation for a possible vista next year. Had to laugh at the piece about a drag queen offering you a lobster!!
